Thanks to Russell, who tipped us off to the fact that John Piper has provided some excellent missions sermons and panels, originally staged at a missions conference in 2011, at…

Speakers include Louie Giglio, Jason Mandryk, Greg Livingstone, David Platt, and, of course, Piper himself. Excellent stuff. (Thanks Russell!)

11) MAF-LT Presents Oral Strategies Workshop

Over two-thirds of the world cannot, or will not, learn from reading. But stories open the road to their hearts. MAF-Learning Technologies offers Oral Strategies Workshops in many places around the world. However, each year they offer one in the US. This year it will take place in Boise, Idaho, June 4-8 2013. Students will learn to teach the same way Jesus taught. They will be able to tell fun, accurate Bible stories, lead interactive Bible studies, and equip short-term mission teams. The methods taught work particularly well with people groups who are preferred oral communicators, but even the highly literate find new insights. For more information or to register go to:

12) Make a Connection with your Muslim Friend at the Connexion Conf.

If you’ve never attended a Muslim Connexion conference, featuring Dr. Don McCurry, it’s not too late. But you’ll need to scramble. We just heard about this literally this morning. It’s May 17-18 at Southwest Bible Church in Beaverton, OR. You could still catch the Early Bird Special registration price (until May 11) which is $40 for a single, $60 for a couple and $20 for a student. Learn more at

9) Crescent Project Offers Training in Islam

Don’t forget about Crescent Project’s Sahara Challenge…

https://www.crescentproject.org/sahara

The training is non-confrontational, uses much scripture, is informed by Islam itself, and is well-regarded by many. Also, you can actually see online videos of the training at…

http://www.crescentproject.tv/

Cool idea. There must be some way to register so you can watch the videos online (and not have to wait for DVD’s to come in the mail). This would be really helpful to overseas customers, living in sensitive situations. Although it didn’t look like the page was protected by SSL technology, one could use a VPN to address security and, presumably, view the entire training program via a distance-learning approach. Awesome.
